Carlson Mining 2022 Released for Mine Design, Planning

MAYSVILLE, KY, USA, Jan 6, 2022 – Carlson Software has launched Carlson Mining 2022 with a focus on transparency and control for mine design and planning. Carlson’s 2022 official release includes mining modules: Carlson Geology, Carlson Surface Mining, and Carlson Underground Mining. Carlson’s mining solutions are CAD-based software modules that enable modeling, analyzing, and planning capability.

The release includes new additions for drillhole labeling with complete control on formatting as well as improved Google Earth exporting, allowing engineers to easily share technical drillhole information across a universal interface. Carlson Mining 2022 contains new routines for underground mine solid creation, viewing, and editing. These routines integrate well with Carlson Laser Measurement Devices (LMD) systems for precision mapping and measurement.

The Carlson Geology block model viewer now has improved loading speed and the added inspector option allows users to reveal individual block attributes. Another improvement is the ability to increase or decrease specific grade opacity for adjustable viewing. The command Block Model Statistics can now report by grade parameter for more descriptive reports.

A new feature within Carlson Surface Mining is the ability to evaluate mine timing without the inclusion of non-key/waste material. This user-requested feature allows for accurate mine scheduling at quarries when spoil removal is subcontracted. Non-key tonnage is now trackable through the entire scheduling workflow.

Carlson Underground Mining introduces updates to working with underground solids. The Make Solid From Design command now supports vertical alignments and outputs cross-sections and template 3D polylines. When viewing solids, separate colors can be used to distinguish internal and external faces.

“Going into the 2022 release, the Carlson Mining team kept the developmental focus on the end-user,” says Tyler Faulkner, PE, Carlson sales and support. “Carlson’s relationship with our customers is the cornerstone of our culture and it always will be.”

The new release is part of the overall Carlson 2022 Office Software release with additional modules like Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS, CADnet, Construction, and Point Cloud. Carlson 2022 runs on both AutoCAD 2022 and IntelliCAD 10.1.
